LCD Soundsystem debuted with “Losing My Edge,” a single that became one of the most talked-about indie releases ever. A self-effacing spoof of the outrageous pissing contests that often occur whenever music geeks cross paths, laid over a puttering electronic beat with the occasional bursts of discoid clatter, the track was also one of the first released on the DFA label. Several magazines and newspapers would eventually declare James Murphy, the man behind both LCD Soundsystem and DFA, to be one of the coolest people on the planet. Murphy scattered three other LCD singles before releasing a self-titled full-length album. The second proper LCD Soundsystem album, Sound of Silver, was released in March 2007. It contained Murphy's most affecting songwriting and peaked within the Top 50 of the Billboard 200. Led by the single "Drunk Girls" and an accompanying Spike Jonze-directed video, LCD Soundsystem's third studio album, This Is Happening, was released this year to another round of great critical acclaim.
